    Na..this Pre 64 300 H&H is an easy 99% gun. It's gotta stay in my safe. However I do have a very nice Whitworth express in .375 for sale.

    Sweet looking gun that! I shudder to think what it cost!:eek: As you say though if Africa is the goal, sometimes sacrifices have to be made. I have sold any number of safe queens to pay for airfare or whatever. It hurts but a guy can always buy more guns AFTER the safari! Good luck with the 88.

    I'm happy for you, it sounds like a real sweet gun. Unfortunately, I have a 375 H&H, and I don't like to double up on calibers.

    Thanks..my only concern is that this gun being new sat in the gun shop for awhile..I just hope it wasn't dry fired much as I know that's a big no no. Iv'e ordered snap caps for it.

    She's pretty dang close to brand new. I have three .375's also a ruger rsm and a winchester model 70 newer one so I don't have a need for three.

    That is good price for a .375 H&H!
